Report from WLCG MW Officer

The latest version of java openjdk ( 1.6/1.7/1.8) on SL5/Sl6 and SL7 disabled the support for MD5 signed certificates, this has created issued for the WLCG VOs mainly for 2 reasons:

  • some users still have MD5 signed certs, most of them have been renewed but still some are available
  • there is still some software running ( mainly part of the Experiment framework) which makes use of old components still signing with MD5 : i.e. HTCondor 3.2.x which includes an old version of Cream client still signing with MD5. In this particular case we have asked to upgrade the version of HT Condor, but we are still investigating if other components are using MD5

can we confirm that all the latest UMD components are not using MD5 ?

we have sent a broadcast to the sites to ask not to upgrade to the latest java or to enable again MD5 in the configuration. Once we will be sure that all MD5 certificates/proxies are fixed, we will contact again the sites to ask to upgrade java and disable MD5
